The location of the memorial is amazing as are the views of Windsor and London. The design and upkeep of the building and grounds is wonderful and a fitting memorial.

Interesting to go and see the Runnymede memorial, although there isn't actually that much to see. Not much more to say!

Runnymede is where Magna Carta was signed. Nearby is the JFK Memorial-on the only land in England that was given to the Americans! Above (on the hill,overlooking Runnymede) is the RAF Memorial. An awesome memorial, spend time there and reflect on their sacrifice-look for Amy Johnson's name. This is a diverse, historical and interesting piece of a beautifiul country-stop there... More

The four of us spent an afternoon here on a very wet December day. We parked down by the cafe and trudged towards the JFK Memorial which is most contemplative. Would we declare today that we'd pay any price or meet any burden to advance liberty? Sounds expensive. We walked on up the slope and began to get a fine... More

The Air Force Memorial is a lovely and beautifully-maintained memorial to thousands of fallen airmen who have no known grave. It is quite near my home (about 7 miles) and affords a place to go and reflect, as well as to observe the surroundings from the top of the tower.

We started our visit to Runnymede by visiting the RAF Memorial high up above the Thames. The free car park is just a short walk from the memorial. It is in a beautiful setting and a walk round the memorial is a very moving experience. We then drove down to the National Trust car park (free to members) and did... More

Runnymede is close to Staines and yet is very a green quiet area dedicated to the Magna Carta, JFK and Airforce memorials. The walk from the car park by the Tea shop to the Air Force memorials takes a good 40 minutes and is all up hill. You walk through woodlands and meadows full of cows. The memorials are all... More
